ASICS Vine Body Sole Weekend!
Wine, Yoga, 13.1 Miles, Gorgeous Gals, Fitness Mavens, Celebrity Trainers, To Die For Decor..... Are you dying yet? Ladies, this was THE EXPERIENCE at Vine Body Sole last weekend in the gorgeous Napa Valley, California.
ASICS' mission, " SOUND MIND SOUND BODY™ " was expressed throughout the entire event. With women ranging from fitness professionals, stay at home moms, nurses, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, daughters, friends, and more... there really was something for everyone. It was an event that truly left your soul (and sole!) feeling recharged, refreshed, and empowered, and for that, I am SO grateful!
During the event, ASICS mapped out a variety of delicious and cozy hotels for the runners, yogis, or event goers to stay in. We stayed at The Harvest Inn, a decadent hotel right on the vineyards! With world class wine, fresh breakfast, a fire place in the room, and a balcony that looked right over the vineyards, we were TOTALLY swooning from the moment of arrival.
Throughout the weekend, ASICS provided amazing meals, ranging from avocado toast bars, Napa Valley Wine, an amazing VIP dinner, ZICO coconut water smoothies, cocktails, and more. It truly was delicious and HEALTHY!
Friday morning we were able to participate in sunrise yoga (overlooking Napa) and followed the yoga session with the "Want It More Training Challenge" with non other than the FABULOUS Anna Kaiser, a one-of a kind celebrity training who 100% knows her STUFF and will truly kick your booty. I may or may not STILL be sore.... Thank you, Anna! :)
On Friday I also had an opportunity to wine taste and celebrate with some amazing women. California sun + Napa Valley wine + Good company... Can a girl go wrong there?! On Friday night, meditation, sunset yoga, ZICO water coconut cocktails, and the pre-race party were all available for attendance and absolutely ROCKED. On Friday we also zipped over to the Expo to get our gear, swooned over MORE GLAM decorations, picked out a pair of gorgeous ASICS shoes and headed out to RELAX for the evening!
Saturday morning... race day! Goodness was this a fabulous course! Winding through the Vineyards, I wasn't sure if I was running through a scene from Twilight, an enchanted forrest, or in the magical land of Napa Valley.. whatever it was, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL! :) Okay, so it was Napa, but gals... it was breathtaking. From transportation, to course markers, to post-run celebrations (did I mention... massage, wine glasses, shirts, and YOUR CHOICE of wine to take home.. yes the entire bottle!).. it truly was an incredible weekend.
ASICS, thank you for allowing me to be apart of such an incredible event. I am forever grateful for this experience! Thank you also for the amazing gear, partnership, and LOVE! We will always be team ASICS and we cannot wait to come back next year! I'm already making arrangements for our Blossom To Be Fit retreat to take place on this weekend!
Ladies, get ready. Vine Body Sole 2017 is calling!
